by The Yahoo! Movies Editorial Staff     March 22, 2009

Many movies are good, some are great, but only a select few can be called truly "essential." After long discussions, a fair amount of bargaining, and a shouting match or two, the staff at Yahoo! Movies has put together this list of the 100 films you must see before you die. To choose the titles for the list, we considered factors like historical importance and cultural impact. But we also selected films that we believe are the most thrilling, most dramatic, scariest, and funniest movies of all time. Some of these films you've seen, and some you may not have heard of, but we believe that each one is a timeless classic that you absolutely have to see.
